Country Music Classics Review

by Al Campbell

Country Music Classics, Vol. 6 (1980-1985) collects 40 songs of the genre from the '50s, '60s and '70s spread out over three discs. While a few of these tracks are the original hit recordings -- including "I Can Help" by Billy Swan, "El Paso" by Marty Robbins, "The Battle of New Orleans" by Johnny Horton, and "Behind Closed Doors" by Charlie Rich -- the majority are inferior re-recordings. Because of the vast difference in quality, this budget compilation cannot be recommended.
